The purpose of this project was to review the history and progress of urban maintenance in preparation for the Venice Project Center’s 20th anniversary. Due to language barriers, knowledge about Venetian infrastructure and maintenance is largely unavailable to people outside of Italy, thus our primary focus was to produce a collection of chapters highlighting the most important aspects of urban maintenance for an English-based publication on Venice. Once this information was collected, the team explored new ways in which the data could be used to benefit the people of Venice, specifically those with mobility impairments.
